For the first time that I can remember, Mezco held a press briefing this year. Their booth was larger and more open than it has been in the past and this is an immediate effect of their expanded product offering. Ever since the introduction of the One:12 Collective, which has set the collectible action figure world on fire, Mezco has been one of the hottest companies in the industry.
This year, Mezco came to Toy Fair loaded for bear with a beautiful and diverse slate of products led by a STAGGERING number of One:12 figures. From Marvel and DC to Evil Dead and Diabolik, there is something in this line for everyone and all of the figures are true works of art.
But, lest people think that Mezco now begins and ends with One:12, let me assure you that is not the case. In fact, there is a significant amount of product in all of Mezco’s other lines, from Living Dead Dolls to horrifying “Burst-a-boxes” to a MASSIVE King Kong figure. Let’s dive into what’s on tap.
Here is my Facebook Live walkthrough of Mezco
(NOTE: THE WIFI IN THE JAVITS CENTER WAS AWFUL FOR MOST OF THIS RECORDING, RESULTING IN GRAINY FOOTAGE AND RESTARTS IN SOME PORTIONS. THE IMAGES IN THE GALLERY ARE ALL SHARP)
Here is the photo gallery.

They’re a great group of folks who produce some extraordinary items. I’m so happy for their success and can’t wait to see what they do next. Special Thanks to Mike Drake, “Mez”, Pierre and Damien at Mezco.
